The Denver Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s annual Passing of the Gavel ceremony is not only a turnover of leadership but a celebration of past accomplishments. The past few years have been a time of transition and change for the Denver Hispanic Chamber, but through it all they have remained strong and dedicated to promoting Hispanic business development in Denver.

During the ceremony the principals of the Denver Hispanic Chamber expressed their gratitude to Martha Rubi for her service to the DHCC Board of Directors as the Chairwoman. Through her support and leadership the chamber was able to increase membership and their budget. Rubi is truly committed to the DHCC and will continue to be intimately involved for years to come.

With the new year comes new leadership. The gavel was passed to the new DHCC Board of Directors' Chairman, Luis Colon. Colon sees great opportunity ahead for the Chamber and is dedicated to making the Chamber flourish and become an even more prominent member of the community. Colon also took this time to recognize the DHCC Board of Directors, most of whom were in attendance that evening.

The mission of the DHCC is to promote and advance the growth of Hispanic business. The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is a membership-driven organization of Hispanic businesses, professional associations, and corporations working together to provide partnership opportunities through programs and services designed to help members meet their goals.
